Episode CXXVIII: I Need More Porn At Work!

When PC gaming reviewer (and Blueonic’s cousin) Teg is in the house, no one is safe…

This week the Bastards share their thoughts on the new Denzel Washington/Ryan Reynolds film Safe House, Anvil gets pissed at some Jedi and Sith people, and discover a little gem from 2008 known asĀ Beer For My Horses. The week in sports is also analyzed, including — yes — the disaster known as the Super Bowl. King Baby Duck tries his best to describe the awkwardness of the Kinect Disneyland Adventures demo, Teg & Blueonic share their thoughts on current gaming trends and their predictions for the future in gaming, and the sequel Shank 2 gets played with guns blazing.

It’s coming straight from the horse’s mouth, and no that’s not a double entendre (though it could be). It’s Episode 128: I Need More Porn At Work!

Episode CXXVII: "Don’t Pay Attention To Us! We’re Mormons!"

Our Bastette-In-Training returns for an all-new episode!

This week the B3 crew looks at the week in sports, including a final wrap-up before Super Bowl Sunday (since this was recorded the Saturday before the game). The new movie Chronicle is reviewed, Saignement tries her hardest to forget Underworld: Awakening, and King Baby Duck gets riled up when the best movie of 2011 gets screwed over at this year’s Oscar nominations. Finally the demos for Twisted Metal, Syndicate, Gotham City Impostors, Happy Action Theater, and Rhythm Heaven are looked at, and Saignement shares her initial thoughts on Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Soul Calibur V.

A lot to discuss, and it all fits into place. It’s Episode 127: “Don’t Pay Attention To Us! We’re Mormons!” (You’ll have to see Chronicle to know the meaning behind today’s title.)

Episode CXXVI: Thank You, Gina, May I Have Another?

After a break, the Bastards regroup for an all-new episode.

This week the B3 crew look at the demos for UFC Undisputed 3, The Darkness 2, and Quarrel, and Blueonic shares his reasons why Call of Juarez: The Cartel is such an awful game! Anvil gives his weekly sports report, the Bastards give their Super Bowl picks, and reveal a special bet they have made with Toronto rockers Hunter Valentine on what happens if their Patriots win or lose. An Oh For Fuck’s Sake about annoying people in the movie theater is thrown on the table, and Contraband and Haywire are both reviewed.

Don’t tap out just yet! It’s Episode 126: Thank You, Gina, May I Have Another?

Patriots Dedicate Tonight’s Game For A Somber Occasion

The New England Patriots, who are on the road to open the regular season on the 10-year anniversary of September 11, will recognize the somber occasion at tonight’s preseason game versus the New York Giants.


As part of the remembrance, the Patriots will host former guard Joe Andruzzi, his three New York City firefighter brothers and his father, a former New York City police officer. It was an iconic moment in franchise history when the four Andruzzi boys and their father were recognized on the field at Foxboro Stadium on Sept. 23, 2001, just 12 days after the events of 9/11 as the NFL returned to play and the country began its long healing process. The Andruzzi family will serve as honorary game captains and participate in the coin toss.

Also as part of the tribute members of all five branches of the military will participate in pregame ceremonies, as well as local police, state police and local firefighters. The Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard will present five separate color guards for the national anthem while dozens of police officers and firefighters line the field from end zone to end zone. Approximately 200 armed service members, police and firefighters will take part in the ceremonies tonight.

In celebration of USA Football month in August, the Patriots also invited 1,500 youth football players and cheerleaders from Massachusetts and Rhode Island to attend Thursday’s game free of charge. Invited guests include members of the eight teams that represented New England in the 2010 Pop Warner Super Bowl championships held in Florida. During halftime of Thursday night’s game, four local Pop Warner football teams will scrimmage on the Gillette Stadium field. Approximately 100 youth football players from Plymouth (two teams), Bellingham and Arlington will participate in the scrimmages. As both a football fan and someone who lost a family member on 9/11 I believe this will be a great event.
